BREAKING NEWS 10:31 PM Gay Marriage Approved
ALBANY — Thirty-three state senators have publicly declared they will support legalizing same-sex marriage, all but assuring passage of the measure which will make New York the largest state where gay and lesbian couples can wed.
The Senate took up the measure just before 10 p.m., and the Senate galleries were packed with gay couples in support of the bill and religious opponents of it.

Regarding personal style.
To anyone who is obsessively busy trying to find a style unique to them; don't. It seems to have become some sort of trend nowadays on dA, trying to "find a style", when really it is something quite ridiculous to be doing.
If you compare it to handwriting, it's like worrying about how to make every single letter of the alphabet both beautiful and unique to you when your spelling and grammar leave a lot to be desired, while they are really the most important things to learn first. Sure having a pretty style to look at is nice, just like having a beautiful handwriting. But if all of your other artistic knowledge is falling behind, much like your spelling and grammar, the result will still be unattractive and your art will not reach the viewer in the way that you intended.
So in short, focus on getting better, on gathering knowledge, experience, and practicing, not on finding your own style. Style will happen automatically. Not to mention the fact that if you're a good and experienced eno

So apparently I update this journal once a year. -_-

ANYWAY. I just realized I’ve been sort of basically absent from DA for… a month? Two months?? There was a lot of real life stuff going on, and it got awfully distracting for a while and I just kind of… forgot to check in. ^^; 

So yes, stuff has been happening! Some annoying stuff! But mostly good stuff! Among the annoying things was of course my old computer going kablooie… Two months later and I’m still hunting up old files, reinstalling and reconfiguring applications, trying to rebuild my old bookmarks, and fun stuff like that. So, yay. 

Among the good things has been a flurry of animation jobs, (fun, but they tend to have very short deadlines, so it’s kind of stressful and I keep having to drop all my side projects to meet animation deadlines.) Also among the good-but-stressful things is the fact that I snagged a table for IlluXCon this year! THIS IS MY FIRST CON. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING. AND OH MY GOD YOU SHOULD SEE THE LEVEL OF ARTISTS AT THIS THING WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO. PANIC COMMENCES NOW. So yeah, a lot of my free time should really go into preparing for this thing, because I am nowhere near ready and have no clue.

Meanwhile I’ve been desperately trying to build up a  buffer for the Wayward Queen webcomic, because it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with timely updates - I need a buffer for sanity’s sake! So far it’s, um, not going so well (I’m still basically zero pages ahead of myself)… But I’ll build up a buffer or bust, dammit!

I… guess I should reply to things. I can’t believe how long I’ve ignored my message center. This is so embarrassing. ^^;

Just FYI, I seem to be somewhat more active on Tumblr these days, if you’re into Tumbling (I’m QueenGwenevere on Tumblr.) It’s just so much easier to slap stuff up on Tumblr than on DA (I swear DA just keeps making things more complicated, so I always put off posting.) Though I should really post some of that stuff here, too.

Really stupidly late thanks! ^^; Haha, I actually ended up working - I've been whacked with crazy last-minute deadlines this month (hence why I've been so bad about replies.)

Totally plan to make up for it later, though. I already have a post-Birthday dinner planned with a friend who's been missing holidays too.
